Mothais sur Feuille

Poitou-Charentes, France Pasteurised Goat's Milk

Mothais sur Feuille is named after the town of Mothe-Saint-Héray, where the cheese has been made and sold at local markets since the mid nineteenth century.  In contrast to most goat cheese this one is aged in 100% humidity.  The maturing process takes three to four weeks during which time the cheeses are turned frequently.  The ripe cheese rests on a chestnut, sycamore or vine leaf. 

The rind is delicate and wrinkled, often covered with blue and grey moulds.  The interior has a meltingly soft texture when young, becoming denser as the cheese matures.

The pate is creamy and rich with a light aromatic earthy perfume.  When young there are delicate wood, earth and leaf flavours, becoming more intense with age. 

$20 each
